Apstrakt: The use of advanced machine learning algorithms started having a tremendous impact on almost every aspect of our life, including: Politics, education, the way we conduct science, and more.

I will start my talk with a short description of some of the great opportunities the new technologies might open, with a discussion of potential dangers we may face. The rest of my talk will focus on what the academia should do and what computer scientists can contribute to reducing the probability that the new technology will harm our society
